Super agent Mendes pushed hard to get Coentrao to Man Utd

Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes desperately tried to get Real Madrid fullback Fabio Coentrao to Manchester United yesterday.

United made a late attempt to sign the Portugal international after failing to agree terms with Everton for Leighton Baines.

Punto Pelota says United made contact with Mendes to try and do a quickfire deal for Coentrao in the evening, but time ran out before an agreement could be struck.

With no new left-back arriving, United blocked a loan departure for Alexander Butter last night.
